When I got my BC-610 (that used to belong to W5MEU) John had taken a 
couple of those dual-banana plug jacks, got some small'ish hookup wire, 
and wrapped the hook-up wire around each FT-243 xtal leg, forming a 
'holder' the right size for the FT-243.  The dual-banana-jack plug is 
the exact size for the BC-610 exciter xtal holder.
